Weekly Menu 10/11-10/17

How was everyone’s weekend? Ours was good and still going actually :) I love the excuse for any little holiday because most likely, the bank will be closed which means more time with the husband :) always a good think in my book :)

This weekend, we needed to run a few errands. Nothing big…but I really wanted to go to Ross to look around. For those of you who know my husband, he despises Ross. He hates how busy it is, and how there are never enough associates to ring you up, and he hates the disorder of the store. But, I was able to convince him to take me there on Saturday and make him stay while I looked around without any complaining. He did it. He was so perfect while we were there, I was so proud of him. We picked up a Pizza Stone set for $7.99 which got really good reviews online and I got a shirt and one of those draped cardigans I’m always wearing and I found Josh a new barbecue scrub brush.

Sunday, we said goodbye to our sister,  Jessica, ( my SIL) because she left for Ecola Bible School in Cannon Beach. It was sad, but I know she is going to have a fantastic time.

For dinner last night, we did finally make our very 1st homemade pizza. We’ll Josh made it and I helped. I cut olives and made sure there was plenty of cornmeal for the dough. It was an experience and maybe I can get Josh to blog it because it is a really funny story. It turned out…thicker than we would of liked. We don’t like thick pizza at all, but it was still really really good. The Pizza Stone is amazing!

Well, here’s the menu for this week.

Sheppard’s Pie, (with ground turkey breast)  with a side salad 
and I’m finally going to make my Apple Crisp
Maple Roasted Chicken with veggies and potatoes
Tater tot Casserole with green beans (maybe) and some bread
I think Josh is planning on making his Vodka Penne with a salad, 
and maybe some French bread
Crockpot Broccoli Cheese Soup with maybe a side sandwich
Breakfast Burritos with sausage, hot sauce, eggs, and potatoes :)
Roast with potatoes and veggies
Saturday is up in the air a bit…I’m hoping that maybe Josh and I can go on a date. There’s a movie I really want to see and we have some gift certificates for dinner out options. But this is the plan for the week. I’m really excited about a few of these recipes because 2 of them are new, (Maple Roasted Chicken & Broccoli Cheese Soup) so I am looking forward to how those may turn out. 
Special Treats

I’m making Apple Crisp tonight 
and as previously planned for the last few weeks
I want to make that Nutella Pumpkin bread. 
I would also like to make some muffins this week- I’m thinking blueberry muffins with an orange glaze :)
